Eleven free driver update tools (as of September 2018)
Updating tools do exactly what you think - they help you to update some or all of the Windows devices that you have for your computer hard drive. This free update program makes it simple to keep your system up to date. If you use one, and you don't have to worry so much about managing devices, nor do you have to find the right printer at your local manufacturer.
Important: You don't have to use any free update tool to update your device and make sure you never, ever buy one! For more information about manual update procedures for device drivers that you're more than good at, see How do I update my Windows device' device parameters? How do I update my Windows device parameters? How do I update my Windows device parameters?
Driver Booster is the best free software update tool. It' fully compliant with all Windows editions and makes it easy to update your Windows device supporters. You can schedule your Drive Booster to find obsolete drives by default. Once new fixes are found, you can simply begin to download them from the Drive Booster application, so you don't have to go to an web browsing application to get them.
Prior to reinstalling a printer drive, you can see how the new printer drive behaves with the currently loaded printer drive, which is useful. Personally, I like that Drive Booster will create a recovery point before it installs a device if something goes awry during it. There is an options in the Preferences for setting up silent device setup that will hide setup assistants and other pop-ups.
It' convenient so you don't have to click through so many panes when you try to add new software to your system. The Driver Booster works under Microsoft operating systems 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP. The Free Driver Scout is an awesome update tool because it offers real automated update. That means the application will check for all necessary fixes by itself, it downloads the fixes and installs them without any need for your intervention, which is not possible for any other application in this group.
With the Free Driver Scout, you can exclude instrument driver from a scanning so that they do not appear to be necessary in the near term. One more great function of the Free Driver Scout is the possibility to backup and recover them. You can use the software to back up some or all of your driver files and recover them if necessary.
The Free Driver Scout also includes an exceptionally useful tool named os Migration Tool. If you installed a different Windows system on your computer, you would run this tool. Detects the machine driver for the new system and stores it in a user-defined place, such as a removable disk and then restores it to its original state.
Once you have the other Windows system up and running, you can use the same tool to recover these system dependent driver, so you don't have to bother to find the machine driver again. Hint: Although Free Driver Scout is a very beautiful application, it didn't find as many obsolete driver as Driver Booster, which is why I chose this place in the listing.
Driver Scout v1.0 has been tried on Windows 10, but it also works on Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP. Enables mass downloading and automatic installations, so you don't have to click through any setup assistants. The first time you open DriverPack Solution, you can select whether to either select to autodelete and reinstall all your driver files or select which ones to update later.
There is also some fundamental system information contained in DriverPack Solution, as well as a downloadable piece of softwares that can download and run some suggested applications on your computer. The DriverPack Solution support Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP. This is another free update tool that is a little like the DriverPack Solution above.
It is possible to load more than one driver at a time for many different device sorts. Once you' ve finished downloading, the programme gives you instant acces to update the software... with or without an online link. The Snappy Driver Installer is extremely simple to use and does not even need to be reinstalled. That means you can use something like an outside disk to carry the downloads and put them on any other computer.
Also, Snapper Driver Installer has no advertising, does not restrict downloading speed, and can load as many files as necessary without any restrictions. It works with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP distributions. DriveTheLife is a very simple to use software update tool that allows you to update your devices with a software application so that you don't have to look on the web for formal update files.
Not only can this utility update obsolete and unavailable software but it can also repair damaged software and back up all your existing software for you. You will see a driver's magnitude, as well as its publication date and revision number, before you begin downloading, so you can be sure you're getting what you're looking for.
There is an alternate release available that contains networking and works off-line, which is great if you need to get your networking software up and running but don't have the right one. There is also a function in the Driver Talent that allows you to predownload all the necessary computer software so that you can quickly try reinstalling them when you try to get a new operating system.
Using Treiber Talent, I realized that the application itself was on my computer in less than five seconds, and most was downloading very fast software update, which was great. Talent Drive can be deployed on Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP. DriverMax is a free Windows application that can update obsolete Windows software components.
DriverMax can backup some or all of the currently loaded driver, recover backed up driver, reset driver and detect unrecognized driverware. DriverMax has detected a much higher number of obsolete driver files than any other application on this page. When I compared the release numbers with the currently running driver, they all seemed to be current fixes.
Please note: DriverMax can only provide two per daily and 10 per monthly downloads and only one per monthly update. While you can still search for obsoleterivers, you are restricted to how many you can actually use. DriverMax finds Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP support.
DriveCloud (formerly known as Ma-Config ) is a free web site that provides in-depth information about your hard- and software, even obsolete driver. We do this by download of a programme that enables a web navigator to collect information from your computer. On the website you will find BSOD Analysis, My Driver, Autorun, Network Configuration and other areas where you can scroll.
If you need to update a specific printer drive, you can view full information about what the detail of the new printer drive is compared to the currently loaded one. Drivers on Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and Windows 2000 can download and run the Drivers Cloud. DriverIdentifier is a very easy but very useful free update tool for drivers.
If you don't have an ethernet access, you can search for your NIC device if you don't have one, which is great if your NIC doesn't work. Once the scanning is finished, you can use the DriverIdentifier to store the lists of supported devices in an HTML document. If you need to update a certain version of a software update, the update links are next to it.
Please note: You must register a free trial version of your DriveIdentifier software in order to be able to download the latest version of our software. DriverIdentifier finds Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP Windows XP Windows 10 and 8 Windows 7 and XP Windows 7 and XP drivers. Driver Easy is another application that can be used to find Windows device software update files, and it is free for both face-to-face and business use. Plan a scanning with Driver Easy to search for obsolete drives and ask to update.
You can schedule a single scan every day, every week, every month if your computer is running low, or even every logon to Windows. What I like is that it allows me to get my own device without having to open an outside webwser. You can also use extra functions in Drive Easy, such as displaying information about your computer's settings and checking for updated software if you don't have an active network.
Notice: The rate at which I was able to get updated via Driverasy was very slow, much lower than the other applications in this group. You can use Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP with Windows Explorer Windows 7. Device-Doctor is a really basic and user-friendly update tool.
This can be down-loaded as a normal application or as a mobile application that does not need to be reinstalled. Scan for obsolete drives and when an update is found, you will be redirected to a website to retrieve it later. Since you need to update outside Device Doctor, you sometimes need to unpack device file before you can use them.
This can be done using a self-extractor such as the one that comes with Windows or a third-party tool such as 7-Zip. The Device Doctor is restricted to just 1 per daily update. It was developed to find Windows XP to Windows 10 supporters. DriverHub is really simple to use as it downloads and installes the device for you and has an entire section of the application that deals with restoring your device if something goes sour.
It has a clear user surface with only a few keys. Preferences contains some items for modifying the downloaded folders and deactivating the checking of updates. Keep things easy and reinstall what DriverHub suggests, or switch to advanced mode to select which device you want to get, view release numbers, and reinstall alternative devices (i.e. a newer device, but not the latest version).
DriverHub's Useful Applications section is not driver-related, but contains some useful hyperlinks to Windows utility applications, such as Disk Management, Task Manager, Utility Preferences, View Preferences, and more. Please note: During installation you may be prompted to use another application, such as a web navigator or something else. DriverHub website says it works on Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7.
